THE WALDMERt. 




OTH THE KENT HOUSE AND THE WALDMERE are under the same Proprietorship. 

\ It is belieVi'd that niuch gooJ has been accomplished by the two houses worl<ing 

together in harmony, under one management. The satisfactory result has proven tlie 

^JlT^ wisdom of tliis arrangement. While each will have its distinct individuality, the 

M guests of either house will have all the privileges of the other. 

Many radical changes and improvements have been made, some of which are on 
Ion extensive a scale to be mentioned in detail, but much has been done that will add to the comfort 
and convenience of guests. Among other things is tlie consolidation of the two lighting plants ; remov- 
ing of casino building and gas holder; also, combining tlie two water systems and supplying both 
hotels and all cottages from the Kent House Artesian Wells, wliich an analysis shows to be excep- 
tionally pure. Much has been done in the way of renovating, painting, and laying out of the grounds, 
so that Lakewood will look prettier than ever. 



LAKE CHAUTAUaUA, 

NEW YORK. 

THE HIGHEST NAVIGATED WATERS, 

EAST OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS. 

Its Outlet is via Conewango Cr. and the 
Allegheny, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers 
to the Gulf Mexico at New Orleans.

' Kil scenery and the numerous health and 

pleasure resorts locateil upon its shores. It is situated in the southwestern corrier 
of New York Stale, at an elevation of 1,^00 feet above the sea level and Scx) leet 
above Lake Eric, from whicli it is but eight miles distant at its western extreniiiy. 
Us pure, ileep, elear water conies almost entirely from underground springs, there being 
111) inlet, and tlie atmosphere possesses a freshness and braciness born of contact with the 
iiiidulaling waves of the cool waters of the lake, that brings invigoration and health, 
drives away insomnia and defies malaria. 




FROM VERANDAS OF THE HOTELS. 



I ZSK PW(^(")r) ^'>' "^°^'^ "°' familial with Chautauqua Lake, 
L - - -' is often associated with Chautauqua, the seat 

of the National Assembly. While it is only 14 miles distant, making 
it possible for Lakewood people to enjoy all the advantages of the 
Assembly, it is a distinct point of itself, and stiictly a health and 
pleasure resort.

THE WALDMERE. 



T~ LI F- (~OTT3ri F S FI^"1<1'\? t'l^ hotels on three sides are the cottages. 
' Tliey are, properly speaking, a part of the hotels, 



as they are occupied by people who live at the hotels, and have been brought to 
Lakewood by its conveniences and the desirable society which a mingling of hotel 
guests and cottagers has produced. The latter get their water from the famous 
Kent House Artesian Wells, electric lights from the hotels, and take their meals 
there. All lots are sold with provisions in the deeds requiring the erection of lirst- 
class cottages ; that no stable or objectionable outbuildings shall ever be erected upon 
the ground, or lic^uors sold on the premises ; thus protecting the cottage owner from 
annoyance of this kind. A few cottages are for rent, they are favorably located near 
the hotels, fronting towards the lake ; have all modern improvements, lighted by 
electricity, electric bell connected with hotel office, bath and toilet rooms, with 
arrangements for both hot and cold water.

none of the disadvantages.

tude, and asthma or hay fever are cither prevented ur greatly 
relieved.

this lake. The famous CHAUTAUQLIA LAKE MUSCALLONGE takes its name 
from this lake, and it is the only place where it aliounds. It is served daily upon the 
tables of the Kent and the Waldmere. Black bass and other game fish abound in 
great quantities, and the clear cold waters of Chautauqua are so well adapted to the 
propagation of game fish that the Slate of New York has recognized this fact and 
erected its State hatcheries upon the shores of this lake. 

Muscallonge have been caught weighing as high as 4^ pounds, and small 
mouth black bass weighing seven pounds.
